On The Shoulders of Regular Joe Teachers

giants These few words today are in thanks to all those I've learned from. The thousands of teachers I've trained and spoken with, the thousands of teachers sharing online and who've I've "nudged mouses" with, the many teachers I've had the pleasure of joining in their own classrooms, the teachers who've I've corresponded with by email AND even the teachers I've never even touched bases with (for all knowledge flows, like water). Hat's off to you all.



We often think we rest on… Continue

Typing for EFL students

Today's site is a place your student's can go to learn to type in English. Very friendly and cartoonish but effective. I think typing skills in English are a very necessary skill students should learn when young and also by doing so, they learn a lot of English at the same time!


This site goes through 4 stages, just follow the dinosaurs instructions. In flash and flash and dynamic! Check it out!



I also recommend…

Phras.in

Phras.in is a great way to compare phrases, chunks, collocations and even sentences. Having an argument about grammar and usage with a colleague or student? No problem, use Phras.in and settle it for good. How the language is used, should be the measuring stick!


Phras.in will compare the two expressions using the vast corpus that is the internet. It will give you how often the phrase occurs and tons of…

Halloween Witch -- Flash based storybook (14MB)

Hey everyone!!!

I've been away for a while. Actually I changed jobs, got married, and am going to have a baby soon. So things have been pretty busy.

Anyway, I did find time to finish a long time project that I'm sure all of you elementary school teachers will enjoy.

This is Halloween Witch. The story of a witch whose birthday is on Halloween. It's a really fun story best suited for younger audiences, 3-7 year olds.…

Randall's Cyber Listening Lab

Randall's Cyber Listening Lab is a great site for students to get LOTS of listening practice. All listening activities are leveled from Easy Medium Difficult and Very Difficult and are appropriately leveled in my opinion. A great compliment to our own Listening page.



After the listening portion, there is usually a short multiple choice quiz for… Continue

ELT Games

ELT gamesis a nice "basic" resource site. All the resources are interactive and task based/conversation based. Students must use the information provided to communicate in "real" language terms. The teacher just needs to cut up the materials and distribute and explain (better demonstrate) the task well. I've always been a person who tells all the teachers I train that their best friend isn't a computer, a textbook or even a C.D - it is a pair of… Continue

Transl8it.com

I love Transl8it.com! If your students love text messaging (and most do), they will be motivated by this creative tool.



Transl8it simply takes real English and then supplies you with the text message translation. Simply put in the English and it spits out the text message. Copy this text…

Powerpoints for grade one (grade ten) high school in Korea

These are some powerpoints that I've made to help in my lessons. They are not the entire lessons, just trying to take the textbook that I have to use and putting the content into a more interesting format for the students. I used the powerpoints for games, intros, dialogues, or to initiate discussion in the classroom about the topic.…

Language and Power - WTF?

wtf Today, I watched a CNBC episode of their new series "What the Future" (WTF). I'll refrain from commenting on their narrative and how they provide pleasant propaganda to the masses about helping those less fortunate. I find their message of "choice not charity" rather simplistic and self serving to their business clientele.



No, what hit me while watching the episode (about micro… Continue

Edublog Awards - My Thoughts

everyone's a winner I'm a competitive person so this post is REALLY hard for me. I'm the kind of guy who will compete to see who can stand on one leg the longest. I'm hyper competitive and work hard because I love doing so but also because of this "competitive streak".



So it has been a hard and painful road to realize that blogging and more generally "education" shouldn't be competitive. It already is so very competitive and we shouldn't make it more. That's why, concerning this year's… Continue

Quizlet - the ultimate ELT flashcard resource!

Quizlet I like for one important reason -- it shows the initiative and drive of youth. Quizlet is run and designed by a high school student! Yes, it started it based on his own need to study his French words in high school. And now look at what we have!



Teachers, students can go and practice. I've set up an EFL Classroom account and I'd like members to go there and create a quizlet. That… Continue

SOHO Exchange





Sozo Exchange is a new video site for language learning. I am impressed by how clear the audio is and how well produced. Aimed at adult learners, the episodes focus on interviews and real language. Get a transcript to follow along. Unfortunately, they can't be embeded but you can download them thought they are quite large files. See the latest episode here or I've also… Continue
